Since hitting a multi-year low of $10.25 on Feb. 27, Crocs, Inc. (NASDAQ:CROX) has been on fire. The shares have added over 53% since then, and have outpaced the broader S&P 500 Index (SPX) by over 37 percentage points during the last three months. Today, CROX is 2.7% higher at $15.70, amid news that the company's president and CEO each bought 10,000 shares each. This has gotten the attention of option traders, as more than 4,000 calls have crossed today, compared to fewer than 300 puts.

The May 16 call -- which expires at today's close -- is the most targeted contract by far, as traders bet on the shares toppling $16 by 4 p.m. ET. As of now, the equity's intraday high stands at $16.05.

This is quite the change of pace for CROX option traders. According to data from the International Securities Exchange (ISE), Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE), and NASDAQ OMX PHLX (PHLX), the security's 50-day put/call volume ratio of 1.25 is higher than 87% of readings from the past year.

Options traders aren't the only ones skeptical of Crocs, Inc. (NASDAQ:CROX). The 13.7% of the stock's float sold short would take nine sessions to buy, at its average daily volumes. However, there are some optimistic analysts -- four of seven brokerage firms rate CROX a "buy" or better.
